Blue Christmas Without You!

Sundays are usually my lazy crafty days... that's why this is my third post today! I still have so many autumn projects I want to complete, but I couldn't resist making a quick Christmas card. I always look forward to Christmas months and months in advance- it's my favorite time of the year! My boyfriend and I are big skiers so we are both excited for ski season to begin! Here we are on our ski trip to Flagstaff, AZ this past February: I used my Cuttlebug for the snowflake and best friends embossing. I used my paper trimmer as a guide to create the embossed lines. For the flower I used the same technique I used on my first challenge, but in this case I used a different flower from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I inked the embossing and edges and added some accent dots to the sentiment with a silver gel pen. This was a simple and quick card but I thought I would still enter it in a few challenges.
  • My Time To Craft- "Quick and Cute" was the challenge this week at My Time To Craft. This card was so quick and simple and I think the big handmade flower gives it that cute touch. The creative team over there are looking to add a few more crafters to the design team. I would be so happy to be a part of their wonderful blog so I put myself into the running! I know I may not have a ton of experience in the card making department but I have always loved creating something from the heart and sharing my creativity with others. There are so many amazingly talented people out there in the blog world so I am really honored just to be able to have someone consider me for their design team! Wayne Gretzky said it best, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!" I only wish I had time to make a few more for the DT call- so hopefully they will take a look at some of my previous projects!

  • Cuttlebug Spot- The challenge this week was "monochromatic" and I decided to go with all blue with a little silver in the brad and the pen doodling.
  • Crafty Creations- This is my second submission to the Crafty Creations site and I definitely think I followed their "Blue" challenge with this one!

Thanks for taking a look! I always love to hear your feedback! ( :
